and pay heed to the voice of science.
Realize that Catarrh comes fronr a
germ which infests the blood, and that
the disease cannot exist when these
germs are routed from the blood. Tne
rational and successful treatment,
therefore, is one that- reaches the
bloqd, and cleanses it of every trace
of impurity and, rids it of these tiny
catarrh germs. Of course no locai
remedies can reach the blood supply,
and that is why Catarrh is not cured
by sprays and lotions.
The one great blood remedy that
has made a wonderful record is S. S.
S., which has been on sale by drug
stores everywhere for nearly half a
century. If you would be rid of your
